Today is about to become your new favorite "holiday," because it's National Doughnut Day. Even though we associate the sweet treats with jelly or lots of powdered sugar, they can take on the flavors of any dessert. Stuffed with cream, they become  Boston Cream Pie doughnuts, while after being  coated with cinnamon sugar, they taste like churros. You can even stack some with frosting to make an  Icebox Doughnut Birthday Cake.

Take a walk on the wild side with some of our favorite delicious combinations below — even a savory chicken-and-waffles one — and for even more crazy confections, check out Donut Showdown Thursdays at 9pm ET.

Giada De Laurentiis' Italian Doughnuts come together quickly, thanks to pizza dough. You can glaze them, coat 'em in cinnamon sugar, dip bites in chocolate or just eat them plain.

These decadent  Nutella Doughnuts use an entire jar of the chocolate-hazelnut spread, but they're worth the indulgence.

If you prefer savory to sweet, this play on  chicken and waffles in doughnut form will blow your mind. The doughnuts have a maple-Tabasco glaze and fried pickles on top.

These colorful  Magical Tiger Doughnuts are a great blend of chocolate and fruit to mix things up. You can have fun with the decorating and impress everyone at your next party.
